Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Well I sold one of my bags yesterday, and just what did I do with the money?  BOUGHT MORE FABRIC of course!


It's a lost cause, I'm an addict. but you know what, it makes me happy and I love getting creative and letting those artistic juices flow.


Anyone else out there that feels like I do!?

wonderful piece

You are not alone. I will see a piece of fabric and know just exactly what I will do with it. Then another projcet comes along and I forget the fabric, only to discover it when taking on yet another project. Yes it is addictive, but soooooo much fun. Good job on the sale. I love your bags, so cute and creative. Just like Andrea, I also love chocolate. A sign on my wall says, "Chocolate is cheaper than therapy." Fabric is (for the most part) cheaper than therapy and the sewing is much more therapeutic.

Oh Wandie!!  I'm so glad I'm not the only FABRIC addict out there!!  I actually started my own onlne store selling fabrics as my ADDICTION was becoming a bit of a "hoarding" problem.  Eeek!!!  I love fabric as much as chocolate and wine!!  Congrats on selling a bag!!

I'm a fabric nut too! I can't go into a fabric store without buying some even if I don't have a project in mind! Even if I live to be 100 I would never be able to use all of my stash - so I have been teaching my 3 granddaughters how to sew & letting them use 'some' of my fabrics but then I buy more because we all have different tastes - do you think there is a 12 step group for this addiction? (I secretly hope not).

Love your bags!
